    The card still works right? I think that exposed line is just GND. You have a lot of those so one getting damaged should not matter.

    I may be seeing a short in your first image. Clean the damaged area with a brush (toothbrush is good) and rubbing alcohol, then take another picture.

    If there is a short, they are best removed with 1000+ grit sandpaper.
